All plans are subject to change per new guidance and/or information that becomes available. As has been the case for many months, KCD’s administrative team is relying on guidance including: the Centers for Disease Control, Louisville Metro Health Department, the Kentucky Department of Education, the Governor’s guidance, and benchmarking with other similar independent schools.   

2022-23 Plans & Procedures

List of 9 items.

  • Report a Positive Case

    KCD Student COVID-19 Reporting Form
    Please fill out the form at this link if your KCD student has tested positive for COVID-19, or is experiencing symptoms and is awaiting test results.
  • Policies for students or faculty who have tested positive for COVID-19

    Regardless of vaccination status, if you have tested positive for COVID-19, you should stay home and isolate for 5 days. If you have no symptoms or your symptoms are resolving, after 5 days you can return to school. Regardless of the current masking policy on campus, wear a mask around others for 5 additional days.

    Following an isolation period, students and faculty will be provided a safe environment to eat their lunch that prevents them from eating within close contact of their peers. Please note, families and faculty may choose to extend their isolation an additional five days (10 days total) to avoid having to eat in a separate location if that is their preference.
    If your student misses 3 consecutive school days, we require a doctor's note to return to school.

  • Are masks required?

    Masks are optional for all individuals (including visitors) indoors and outdoors on KCD’s campus. This policy is subject to change and any update will be communicated to the KCD community accordingly. 

  • Is the COVID-19 vaccine required?

    No. While we recommend the vaccination for all community members who are able to receive it, KCD does not require it.
  • Should I submit my vaccination record to KCD?

    Vaccination records for students will be collected via Magnus on a voluntary basis. Accurate vaccination information will be especially helpful for contact tracing and quarantine decision making. Individuals who provide proof of vaccination will not be required to quarantine or participate in contract tracing unless diagnosed with COVID-19.

  • What do our cleaning procedures look like?

    All classrooms and restrooms will be sanitized multiple times throughout the day, as was done last year.
  • Is remote learning available?

    Access to remote learning

    We plan to focus on our outstanding in-person instruction as much as possible with very few exceptions. Any student who is at home due to COVID related isolation or quarantine will be provided access to Google Meet links to join class remotely per each teacher's directions. Contact your division director with any related request. Other absences, including short-term illness (flu, cold, concussion, etc.) and vacations during school days, will require students to miss class and catch up with assistance from teachers as has been done traditionally.

    Mode of remote learning 

    There will not be a synchronous remote learning option for lower school students this year. During any extended absence, faculty will work with families to keep students engaged and included as much as possible. Middle and upper school students needing a synchronous remote learning tool will have access to a model much like what we have provided during the 2021–22 school year. Students will be expected to log on and stay engaged in the lessons and assessments per the teacher’s instructions.
